hi. my grandson just turned three and has some sensory issues. he was very ill as a baby and spent much time in icu. he does not talk although on occasion he has said some words. he does not follow directions or seem to understand us. he is low tone and seems to have oral issues. drools a lot and puts to much fluid in his mouth and than drools some out. he eats well but puts too much in his mouth/ he also is preoccupied with watching his hands and fingers. duane is also delayed in other areas. we are in canada and i do not think much of our therapies. does anyone have any ideas. thanks grandma dorothy

my grandson is three too and has sensory issues..he drooled until he was almost 2...he is not talking yet, but is jibbering and singing so soon it will happen....Is he in any therapy PT Occupation Therapy and speech therapy..they are wonderful...Also do you have a swing...swinging will help to mature his vestibular system...all these are connected to the brain and his senses... We were brushing him with the surgical brush also that helps stimulate all the senses...there is a specific technique so read up on this....Try to get him active, swinging, tumbling, running and jumping...he is probably delayed in those areas.My grandson is doing wonderful it has taken 2 yrs of intensive therapy and through the headstart program at school... Also lots and lots of hugs, it releases endorphins into the bloodstream. Just be patient and hug and love him...All will be well..
